Life’s short, brutish, nasty under Buhari, Femi Adesina admits
Femi Adesina, spokesman to President Muhammadu Buhari, has admitted that “life has descended into the Hobbesian state of nature; nasty, brutish and short” in the last 18 months under his principal’s control.
“We have, indeed, passed through the most challenging of times in the past 18 months: security-wise, economically, socio-politically, and in many other ways,” Mr Adesina said in an article published in his Facebook page Thursday night. “Life has descended into the Hobbesian state of nature; nasty, brutish and short.”
Mr Adesina said admitting the truth is important to tackling the problem, adding that Buhari regime cannot lie about prevailing insecurity in the country.

“Challenges are meant to be surmounted. Accepting that they are real is the first practical step to combating them. The Buhari administration is not glossing over our issues, but is rather facing them squarely. And that is why We Believe. Some governments lie to their people. No, not the Buhari government,” Mr Adesina said.
Before now, Mr Adesina had said insecurity in the country is being “played up” to rubbish Mr Buhari’s achievement, accusing citizens of hating the regime.
